How do you convert cuft into liters for tank sizes? What is the conversion factor?

Thanks in advance

The conversion is not too hard, but it does require a few calculations.

To convert cu ft to Liters: 1. convert psi to BAR: multiply psi by 0.0689475729. 2. convert tank cuft to liters: multiply cu ft by 28.3168466. divide the liters by the BAR and it will give you the liter equivelent of a cu ft (SAE) tank. for reference, an AL80 would be a 10.6 liter metric tank. (10.6/207 bar)

To go the other way Liter to cu ft: 1.multiply the liters of the tank by the BAR (total liters at max pressure) 2. Multiply the total liters by 0.035314666 to get the cu ft equivelant. A 10L/250 BAR tank would be a 132.4 cu ft tank.

Here is a link to a link to a cubic feet to liter converter. It is the first I got when I did an internet search. Cubic Feet to Liters conversion calculator (http://www.metric-conversions.org/volume/cubic-feet-to-liters.htm)

Thanks Navy I knew there was something I was missing.
